Hundreds of taxi drivers in Greece have blocked roads leading to the Athens International Airport and the port of Piraeus
Hundreds of taxi drivers in Greece, who began a 48-hour strike protesting against the government's plans to relax rules governing the sector, have blocked roads leading to Athens International Airport and the port of Piraeus.
Several taxi drivers took to the roads in an effort to force the government to back down on its decision to liberalise dozens of highly regulated professions.
Traffic was brought to a stand still on a road leading to the cruise ship terminal at the port of Piraeus and on the main access highway leading to the airport.
Holidaymakers arriving in Greece to be confronted with the blockade will have to consult their
travel insurance policy throughout their holiday as protests grip the country.
Travellers at the Athens International Airport have been advised to make use of airport shuttle trains to get to their destination.
The Greek government has announced a series of economic reforms and austerity measures, as it tries to tackle a major debt crisis.
